  • Jockey lets Frankel do the talking

    International Horse Racing October 19, 2012 10:12 pm

    Irish jockey Tom Queally has been the unsung hero of racing superstar Frankel’s 13-race unbeaten run. But even if the great horse wins his 14th and likely final race at Ascot on Saturday, don’t expect the 28-year-old Irishman to be pushing himself to the front to claim the credit. For […]
